Nice clear pictures attached here. (sorry about Photobucket failure.)

My guess is it is a 1970, based on the Nervex lugs (no later than 1971), the Stronglight 93 crank, and the riveted serial number plate (no earlier than 1970). I also think perhaps it is a German...

PX-10, but what year?

Just bought what I think is a PX-10, or about half of one. Not a single decal on it, though, and I'm trying to nail down the exact model and year so I can get the right decals and source the right...

ID and value help on a Bianchi Brava

I think the Brava may have changed more than any other Bianchi model over the years, and this one has me puzzled. I’d like the experts to weigh in on what I have here and what it’s worth.

It's a 1982 PKN-10.

Nice machine. Should have Reynolds main tubes; the decal will be above the downtube shifters. If memory serves, the word "Competition" is in script on the right side of the top tube near the...

I've come into a 22" frame, and can't positively identify who made it or its model, as it is a total (blank) repaint.

Nice bike for an entry level rider

The UO14 was a decent, mid-level bike, a good rider but not rare or collectible. I would think that $100 for a good condition UO14 would be a decent balance between selling it quickly, and getting a...
